Last week ALN had: 22,954 Blogs
Today is has: 17,657 Blogs
There hasn't been any PR updates over the last week, so it appears the 5,297 domains lost were directly related to de-indexing.
If you received a message last night that some of your domains were removed from the network due to de-indexing; you're not alone. These footprints are becoming too easy for Google to find.
John and I have decided to focus again on our Article Backlink Co-op http://www.articlebacklinkco-op.com/ Those of you who remember the Backlinksforum might remember the discussions we had about creating a high quality shared article network. We had to pull the plug on that project to fix our HPBL networks-- but we've got that issue resolved and are ready to move forward again on creating a new network that is safer from getting de-indexed and is higher quality.
If anyone has any ideas they would like to have us build into the network; please share them. We're planning on implementing some principles we're using on our new reloaded program. (Those of you who are our members know what I'm referring to)
NOTE: I still think ALN will be okay and continue to provide value. But, when 25% of the network gets de-indexed; its time to rethink and plan more for future algo changes.
